Comments Do you ever feel compelled to get pairs?

  • I don't usually buy in pairs unless it's very specific characters. For me personally, if I could, I'd like to have Levi and Erwin always paired together. But I know Levi gets more figures made of him solo and I'm not one to turn down a good Levi figure.

    But when it comes to Chocola and Vanilla from Nekopara I have to get the two of them together. Probably the only pair I'm strict on keeping together. If I can't get both I most likely won't get just one.

    i always feel grief splitting the madoka magica cast apart, so i force myself to buy the whole set (unless its too much of an extra cost to get the last one/two i need). anytime i buy goods of bsd, ENTRY #76221 and ENTRY #82180 can't be seperated either.

    Normally I just latch onto a single character and go all in for them, but lately I've been having that issue with Chifuyu (ENTRY #187368) and Baji (ENTRY #187370) from Tokyo Revengers. I don't ship them romantically, but so much of their merch just pairs really nicely together.

    I also buy the Travelers (ENTRY #217398 & ENTRY #217382) from Genshin Impact in pairs as well because how could I bring myself to separate these siblings? I hope the painted prototypes for their nendoroids will be revealed soon because they already look so adorable.

    "Sebastian in just his suit is boring."

    *cries*

    But to actually answer the question I don't find myself doing this too often. Usually it's because I have to like the figure and character design in addition to liking a character to want a figure of said character. Usually I only find myself wanting one of the figures of the pair. Then there's also the problem of one character getting all the figures while the other person doesn't. I do appreciate pairs built into the figure such as ITEM #740179, or ITEM #644120 as a set with ITEM #644121, or ITEM #686366. Ash/Eiji and Sailor Moon/Tuxedo Mask are really the only pairings I feel strongly about and would feel wrong to separate although if Sailor Moon is with the other Senshi it's fine. I'm generally not a big shipper. I happen to buy the Freeing male bunny sets because I like each figure individually.

    I try do this with any kind of Chika or You merch I find!!! I love the both of them and since so much Love Live merch has the whole group matching I feel more compelled to buy the two of them together <//3

    I don't really care for any other LL characters either, and thankfully Chika and You are in the same sub-unit together X)

    Given I’m an insane shipper, absolutely! Only downside is for most heterosexual pairings… good fucking luck ever getting the guy. For example Hana (ITEM #1041129) from Uzaki-Chan. Twitter outrage aside, I absolutely adored her paired with Shin’ichi (the main character from the show); they’re an adorable couple and I love them but guess who isn’t going to get anything? That’s right, poor Shin’ichi. Guess my Hana Nendoroid is going to be alone on my shelf.

    Now, when it comes to yuri typically things are easier. Keyword, typically. For example one of the reasons I never got the Azone Yoshika (ITEM #14223), besides the awful… awful hair is that they never made a Lynne (ENTRY #2035).

    So, yes. Quite frankly my shipping preferences will help guide my decisions because at the end of the day anime tends to do an awful job with romances and it’s up to me to solve it… by buying action figures and smacking them together while making kissing noises!

    I try to have equal numbers of Kaworu and Shinji figures, even if the Shinji ones don't always turn out well (ex. the recent FREEing yukata scales). If I have the option, I have to get both of them! It's what Kaworu would want, after all.

    absolutely. however, i do end up with a surplus of merchandise of the character i like better haha. in my case, it would mainly be with mello and near, sasori and deidara, sasuke and naruto, karma and nagisa, rantaro and shuichi, kaworu and shinji, nagito and hajime, and nozomi and eli. it's a very uneven scale of merchandise though since i'm not opposed to buying merchandise of mello, deidara, rantaro and nozomi alone, so they all have their merchandise displayed with their pairs, and then separate displays for merchandise that is specifically dedicated to the one character alone. of course, that means they take up a whole lot of space XD

    i like most of them separately as characters with the exception of near and sasuke whom i hate with my entire being- but they're just so important to the series that they're part of, and perfect pairs with their respective partner (whether it be platonically, as rivals, or romantically).

    i only for sure try to with kaito & meiko (will be honest, knowing they were 100% making ITEM #1086620 was the final push to order ITEM #991196 though i love them both anyway- i can't just have one! T__T) otherwise, i will usually try for the kagamines as well (they're twins after all!!!) but not as often
